JVM structure

What exactly is a symbolic reference? How is it resolved at the time of linking just after class loading is completed? Explanation would be nice or you can share a link that explain this well.

Avinesh The 3rd paragraph under the dynamic linking section should explain this quite well. https://blog.jamesdbloom.com/JVMInternals.html#dynamic_linking

~ swim ~ But that was quite a nice explanation ­čĹŹ I was just trying to understand the JVM structure and the very first part is class loader subsystem which has linking process that involves symbolic reference and runtime constant pool and other stuffs which are hard to understand in one look. It's just been a couple of hours that I have started reading it in depth so probably I should not be worried right now because I hope that it will sink in with time.
